My waist measures 34 and my thigh's aren't the biggest, I think I had issues with my N&F weird guys in the thighs because I got a size 30... Can you link to these two jeans you speak of? Can't see them in the B&S
Izach, LHS stands for Leisure Hand Sewn, these are the loafers (hence leisure) and are hand sewn.
PTB stands for Plain Toe Blucher. As I understand it a blucher is an oxford where the laces don't tie together tightly and therefor the tongue is visible.
